In Montessori schools we offer opportunities for students to develop life long learner skills in the following ways:

  • Respect for all
  • Choice in activity and work selections to develop interests and passions
  • Opportunities to share and listen and ask questions
  • Creating classrooms with a balance of challenge and caring
  • Classrooms where mistakes are opportunities for learning
  • Teachers who are guides and role models
  • Multi-aged groups where students find their place naturally
  • Uninterrupted blocks of work time
  • Opportunities to collaborate with other students
  • Reliance on intrinsic rather than extrinsic motivators
  • Encouragement for efforts and multiple attempts on the path to success
  • Partnership with parents and understanding of the importance of family time
  • A sense of humor

In the Mind/Shift article about teaching strategies it states that when educators make space for play, and passion, students develop purpose.
